Tuesday, September 25 at 1 pm on the Washington Square, the Washington Garden Club will dedicate a plaque telling about how the Garden Club spearheaded a drive to keep the highway from going directly through the square. This is a drawing of what the square would look like today if the City Council had accepted the proposal. We hope the community comes together tomorrow to say thank you to the Garden Club for a job well done. ... See moreSee less

UPDATE: the work is done and the pavement is intact!
Workers will be in the center lane on S Main at the bridge over the next few days. Please slow and watch for them while they restore the center of your road. That said, if you want to watch them for a while, we ask that you safely park outside the construction area and approach slowly on foot. Be quiet; construction workers can be skittish. Please don't feed them or they will not be able to live in the wild. Thanks!

What caused or what is the problem with the pavement/bridge surface? Why has it taken so long to move forward on this repair?

👍🤣

I believe city of Washington’s site has a great person who handles it. Always keeping us updated. And on top the humor is great and tasteful

Again you guys just make me smile

Might as well take down the speed limit sign from my front yard. Very few obey it.

How about stripes on the roads!! Be nice to see in the rain at night...👿

Fire Hydrant Flushing Scheduled

Public Works will be flushing fire hydrants September 4- September 14, 2018, weather permitting. We say weather permitting, because you don't want to do this stuff in the rain (one might get wet).
Flushing hydrants may produce low water pressure and discoloration of water. To eliminate the discoloration, simply open your faucets and allow them to run until water is clear. There is no need to boil water for consumption.
SAVE YOUR TIGHTY WHITIES: Before using your washing machine, please check for discolored water. If the water is discolored or sediment is noticeable, run an empty cycle through the washer before laundering clothing.
